RIM Rules. . . Follow Them!

I was reading the reading another major drug company embroiled in litigation and was struck by the reality that the two central pieces of evidence that are exposing the company to great potential cost and expense are two things that if they followed one our policies would not have even existed to begin with. Voicemail messages are one target and the other is draft documents. The February 27, 2009 Wall Street Journal article states in pertinent part that “…the document written by Dr. Geller doesn’t accurately reflect the company’s position in 2000. In fact, it was not Dr. Geller’s ultimate view either. It was an initial draft for discussion purposes… In response to a plaintiffs’ attorney’s question, Dr. Geller responded that the statement was an artifact of an earlier discussion document.”

Makes a pretty strong case for RIM rules and following them

Are you kidding me, a lawsuit whose evidence is stuff that should not exist to begin with.
